Join us! Everyone is welcome.
Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?
The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food.
Next up, Feb. 19th: Local Cheese Tasting
The February session will feature local cheese and wine expert Adam Centamore, a professional wine and cheese educator who conducts educational, private, and corporate tasting experiences with the goal of sharing the pure enjoyment of these foods. He will lead us though a tasting of several local cheeses along with tips on building a cheese plate with complimentary jams, nuts, and fruit. Learn about the challenges of making and selling Cheese in New England.
Adam will also give us some wine advice to serve with our cheese platters. He is certified by the Elizabeth Bishop Wine Program at Boston University, a member of the French Wine Society and Society of Wine Educators, and also the Maitre d ‘Fromage for the Boston chapter of the Chevalier du Tastevin, a prestigious French wine society. By day, Adam works at Bin Ends Wines, and teaches at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, a world-renowned cheese importer featuring artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and condiments from Europe and the United States. Adam enjoys eating, drinking, and talking about it!
Gathering is partially sponsored by Trucchi’s Supermarkets.

Love to cook? Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings. There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling.
TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER: In an effort to help fight hunger on the South Shore, we will be collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of each gathering to donate to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse. If you can, please bring a can.
The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases. South Shore Locavores is a collaboration between the Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast magazine.
